Interactive films help inspectors check fire safety

Pilot project in Abu Dhabi could be rolled out to other new buildings planned in the UAE

A pilot programme of new fire safety inspection developed over five years in Abu Dhabi will be extended to cover new buildings across the country.

Fire safety experts have been filming the construction process of new buildings to help identify correct procedures and where weak spots should be addressed.

An interactive 3-D fire safety training film has been made by Abu Dhabi Civil Defence, helping simplify new UAE fire codes.

Recordings were made during the construction of the Cleveland Clinic Hospital in Abu Dhabi, helping document the development as a blueprint for similar projects in future.

If approved, the idea could be used in new buildings planned for Sharjah and Dubai to help speed up the inspection process for fire safety regulators.

“We started work on this project five years ago, during summer when there is heavy demand on inspections due to shorter working hours,” said Bassem Khalil, senior fire safety engineer at Abu Dhabi Civil Defence.
